Found in the country's western Extremadura area, the plants-- called Cáceres 2020, Cáceres 2021 and also Cáceres 2023-- will have a total of 240,800 panels as well as will create 243,600 MWh each year. They will certainly be connected to a 30/220kV step-up substation situated at one of the plants.

GES will provide equipment as well as material products and carry out style, engineering and also construction of the projects, which are expected to be functional by end of 2021.

The plants are had by Alter Enersun, a solar programmer that belongs to Spanish empire CL Grupo Industrial, which acquired GES in 2017.

As well as greater than 150 rooftop solar installations for business and also industrial customers, GES needs to day built 430MW of utility-scale PV plants in markets such as Chile and Jamaica. It began work last year on a 49MW plant in the south of Spain that is possessed by a freshly formed joint endeavor from Alter Enersun and also Bruc Energy.

Along with GES's three projects, Extremadura is readied to organize a series of brand-new large-scale solar projects, including the 590MW Francisco Pizarro plant being created by Iberdrola as well as 150MW of projects from utility Endesa.
